Julep Maven - Classic with a Twist

Friday, February 03, 2012

Julep Maven is the only subscription service that I'm not that interested in. The company is great but I think $20 a month for nail polish is an unnecessary luxury right now. In hindsight, I have spent more than that on nail polish in the past.

I'm trying not to buy too many polishes this year, so I didn't want to commit to $20 a month for polishes (and I know, you can skip a month.. but why sign up just to skip every month). However, when I found out that they were having a $5 promo, I caved.

After taking their style quiz, I turned out to be Classic with a Twist. You can change the box you receive (in case you don't like the colours in your 'style'), but I just stuck with what I got because none of the other boxes overly appealed me.




I received an Age Defying Hand Brightener and two polishes: Taylor (periwinkle creme) & Maya (shimmery peachy pink).

The colour and application of the polishes is beautiful. I will have swatches in the next couple of days.

Julep boxes ship from Seattle (in the US), so it took about a week and a half to reach me in Toronto.

While I enjoyed the products I received, I probably won't be subscribing on a monthly basis. I just don't have room for more nail polish in my life right now.

If you haven't tried Julep yet and you're Canadian, now is a good time to! They're having a great promo where you can get a box for only one penny. Yeah, 1 cent! Use the promo code: COLOR2012.


EDIT: Actually, the total comes to under $2... Darn tax ;).

Have a great day!

  1. Great post! I am waiting for my intro Julep box - I think it is actually at the post office right now - I just have to pick it up. I will do a review on it when I get it - my style profile was It girl. But I thought it was $19.99/month?

  3. Thanks for the promo code! Really excited to get my first Julep box for one cent! I think I'd probably discontinue the service after I get my box though...hopefully it won't be too hard to cancel! One cent was just too good to pass up!

  11. I tried Julep for a month another time they were having a box for $5 promo, but I wasn't that impressed. The polishes are nice, but way over priced, and the bottles are pretty small, too. I've been continually skipping the boxes, because I can't just cancel. That's the one thing that I hate the most about Julep that I didn't notice before I subscribed: in order to cancel your subscription, you have to call them. At least you can skip months though, but I'm scared every month that I'll forget to skip and that I'll get charged 20 bucks for polish I don't want!

  12. Hey Aleeza! thanks for letting us know about this promo! I've always wanted to try it out but $20 just seems a bit much. However since this is a great promo I think I'm gonna have to give it a try :) thanks again! The colours look great!

  15. Do you know if I want to skip or cancel the next month, do I do it on the 20th-24th of February or March?

  16. @Anonymous You would do it on the 20th-24th of this month, so February :).

  17. i just put in my order, thanks for the code! so do you plan on continuing with this subscription or cancelling? i also don't think that $20 a month for nail polish is worth it, but it's it 1 cent, it's worth a try for a month!
